    Ok, who does the whacky stuff here live?

    My bassist ducks down, and then I jump on his shoulders, and then my lead guitarist jumps on mine, then the bassist stands up forming what I like to call GUITAR VOLTRON!

    beat that

    Well, it's well documented that I'm a fucking spastic nut onstage...donnie can attest to that. I'm constantly moving & do all kinds of "showy" playing (i.e. playing OVER the neck instead of under, flashy licks, crowd participation instigator, etc). Up until a few years ago, I would jump off 10 ft. speaker colums into the crowd with guitar in hand, but that really starts to hurt the older you get. :lol:

    I remember when Zappa came to the UK and took a dump on the stage during the gig.
    That's quite whacky, but in a different way. :lol:

    i jumped off our concert subs a few years ago... it would've been cool had we done the regular 4 bars into the heavy part.... INSTEAD my drummer decides we go for 5 bars(WTF)..... i still need to kick him in the nuts for making me look like an idiot :wallbash:

    Sometimes...I like to kick my deskchair over and...oh we're talking about live shows.

    Anyhow, Iggy Pop used to poop onstage. Can anyone beat that?

    The shows I've personally played, I'm usually checking out the unveiled boobs...that's the only good thing about playing crappy pop/punk covers at college venues. :noplease:

    I tend to just be generally spastic on-stage. Though we have the occasional moment in our set where things kinda line up between the band members. For example, in one song our bassist, singer, and myself are all headbanging at the front of the stage in unison (only one time in the whole set, the bridge of one song), and on the bridge of another song myself and our bassist are playing a harmony-ish part together, so we shove the singer out of the way and take center stage.

    GG Allin sure as fuck tried.

    Dying or getting killed on stage is always a tough one to follow too.

    edit: but it doesent beat guitar voltron :flame:

    I didnt say GG Allin died on stage, I was refering to Iggy taking a crap on stage. but he did take his fatal shot of heroin on stage.

    Try Judge Dread or Dimebag though for that.

    Im not a midget, but the lead guitarist of my metal is pretty tiny though, even for a girl.
